I don't understand where the blind faith comes from. Even though the average zoner is 30, they seem to have the memory of someone 95. Every year they get their hopes up, rip on the people that say 8-8 is the ceiling, and then start making excuses why the team can't make the play-offs in the weak NFC, but claim the next year will be different. Facts, we have a rookie head coach, Alex Smith year 7, and our running back coming off injury and middle aged. The secondary is suspect, new playbook and shortened off season, etc,etc. This team is much more likely to be 6-10 than 10-6.

Real talk. I'm not hating on anyone trying to be optimistic, but this post said it all... We are a lot worse than some of you think. Just bc we have Harbaugh doesn't change the fact that Alex Smith has struggled to play well his entire career, Frank Gore is getting past his prime, our secondary is practically the same as last year, and all this lockout crap. We are in the worst division in the NFL and we haven't been able to make the playoffs in almost 10 years. If we were in any other division, we'd get destroyed. Once we get some upgrades at some key positions like QB, CB, O-line and a pass rusher we may be in contention for a playoff run... But until then I would not get my hopes up.
As the lockout goes along farther, I feel less confident, but still content. I know Jim is the right coach, just not going to be afforded the right time to get his team online.

But they will be much better going forward.

I've followed the niners for long time, please no hate if you reply.

But who the hell is this Deberg dude. I know a Qb for the smart asses out there, lol, but just how bad stat wise, and as a player was this dude.

If you can't be optimistic and happy about next year, after the 9ers successfully brought in the shining star of college football coaching, you are a pessimist extraordinaire.

I'll just be negative and pissy and hate my team then. Alex Smith sucks! Frank Gore doesn't have anything left! Michael Crabtree is a diva. VD has bad hands. Dont sign Dashon. Taylor Mays is a bust.

That's why I watch the game. Just to watch my team lose... Cause as long as Alex is playing horrible I am happy. That's what sports are about! Screw sticking up for your team and being hopeful. ZOners and these so called FAITHFUL(my ass our fanbase sucks!!!!!!!!!!!) know what they are talking about. Hell they spend more time whacking each other off, and arguing around here that maybe they should spend this time and go to College (like I am) to become a coach and change something myself.

Nahh lets just not get our hopes up. That is wrong to have hope!!!

And ladies and gentleman we have a winner .

I think the sayin goes sumthin like, and don't quote me, u could get a good look at a tbone by sticking your head up a cows a@%, but you'd rather take the butchers word for it.

This is the zone, and there are some knowledgeable fellas in here. So I'd rather hear it from a zoner, then some beat writers article. And if not, oh well. But at least if your gonna say sumthin, add a little productivity too... Cool!

I think a lot are realist, not pessimist. There have been many college coaches that have failed to transition their success to the NFL. Also, the odds are stacked up against the coaching staff this upcoming year. So, its being pretty realistic to not see much improvement in the win column.
